Millions in Southland, Mexico feel 7.2 quake


The 7.2-magnitude earthquake centered near the border city of Mexicali struck Easter Sunday afternoon and rocked all of Southern California and parts of Arizona and Nevada. According to the Tijuana Civil Protection Director Alfredo Escobedo, the powerful earthquake killed a man whose home collapsed in northern Mexico. Escobedo also said that another man was killed when he panicked as the ground shook, ran into the street and was struck by a car. According to reports, Mexicali and adjacent cities are experiencing widespread power outages and buildings are suffering from major structural damage. Escobedo said that at least 100 people were injured, most of them struck by falling objects. Mexicali felt at least 20 aftershocks, and the city is under a virtual blackout without viability to regain power for approximately 14 hours. The quake was one of the strongest to hit Southern California in decades, and high rise buildings in Los Angeles and San Diego rocked back and forth when it hit.
